Staring off the Weekend

So, I had decided that this weekend would be relaxing and very grounding, since I have surgery Monday morning and may not be able to do a lot of the things I want to do for a while.  My Raven has decided that we should go to the zoo in the morning and enjoy it while it is still cool out.  I thought that this was a fabulous idea.  It's been years since I have been to the zoo, and I do love it.  I love to see all the animals and you just don't get to observe them much as it gets into the hotter parts of the year/day.  This works well for me since I am fairly intolerant of the heat myself.

The last time I was at the zoo it was with my son.  Dalton really loves the zoo, and he loves the otters.  Those are his favorite animal.  He loves watching the swim around and play, and will watch them for hours. I took him on a trip several summers ago.  It was just he and I, and we were gone for a weekend.  We drive up to Columbus, OH and spent time at the Columbus zoo, which is home to Jack Hanna, and also went to the Center of Science and Industry, or COSI.  My Dalton had a great time, and I really wish I knew if he remembers any of it or not.  We had a great time at the zoo, and he discovered that he loves manatees.  I have no idea why, but once we found them, we had to go back and see them more.  He even spent his souvenir money on a stuffed manatee puppet. 

This was a very different choice, it seemed to me.  My son has always loved reptiles- turtles and alligators and such.  He has never said why he likes the manatees, but he does...

*Note:  I started this Thursday night at work and I have since then lost my train of thought.
